Report 



The Co-Chairs reported on communications.

progress of setting up the office. Recognized the 
gracious support of the Controller's Office and 
Supervisor Bierman's office in getting our staff office 
on line. 



Charter Proposals 



The Co-Chairs reported there are no new proposals 
tonight. Supervisor Hallinan may submit his proposals 
next week. Supervisor Shelley will try to send 
someone tonight. 



Report 



The Co-Chairs reported on two pieces 
of correspondence. The Chief Medical Examiner 
objected to being titled Medical Examiner- 
Coroner. Peter Nardoza from the San Francisco 
International Airport had serious concerns about 
deleting Sections 3.691 through 3.694. 



Minutes of April 28, 1994 Page 2 



Action 



Mr. Harrington clarified our requests 

for input at the Monday meeting of Department 

heads. 

Mr. Grosboll made a motion to keep the Board 
of Supervisors at eleven members. Mr. Ambrunn 
seconded. 



Discussion 



Straw Votes 



Many issues were raised. Why eleven, why not more? 
There was some discussion of cumulative voting. 
There was also discussion of district election. 
It was mentioned that if members have ideas, that 
they should come prepared with information to 
further their discussion. There was discussion 
about the committee's ability to persuade as an 
advising body. Mr. Gee asked not to suppress 
ideas because of an anticipated lack of political 
support. Mr. Ambrunn reminded that the committee 
doesn't work in a vacuum. Ms. Thier suggested 
we start voting. The first of a series of straw (non- 
binding) votes were taken.

Report 



The Co-Chairs reported that there had been a lot 
of incoming correspondence. All in response to 
our letters regarding technical and obsolete changes. 
Discussion deferred until that agenda item. 



Minutes of May 5, 1994 Page 1 



Charter Proposals Ms. Wong discussed her proposal for Election 

changes. Some key points discussed: 

a. all elections on even years 

b. special and run off elections 
by mail (proven in different 
locations to increase voter turnout) 

c. changes in filing fees 

d. changes in initiative, referendum 
and recall signature requirements/ 

e. changed number of years required 
to run for District Attorney from five 

to ten. 

Mr. Van Ness discussed Supervisor Hallinan's 
draft proposals regarding Community Boards, 
Chief Administrative Officer, Elections, Initiative 
and Referendum, and Legislative Council. 

a. Community based planning and comment 
on City services (based on Districts) 

b. City Manager form of Government in 
the position of CAO, hired by the 
Legislative Council 

c. Mayor either elected by the voters 
or by the Legislative Council from 
among their members 

d. Supervisor Hallinan supports the 
idea of District Elections, but in 
deference to the discussion regarding 
proportional representation, he suggests 
an elected Commission established to 
determine the right number of Legislative 
representatives and what the Districts 
should look like and that body should 
remain in place to readjust the District 
lines as needed. It would be their charge 

to develop the plan by which representatives 
are chosen. 



Minutes of May 5. 1994 Page 2 



Presentation Jim Lazarus presented some key points of the fifth 

Draft of Mayor Jordan's Charter Proposal. 

a. requires appointments to be 
submitted to the Board, if not acted 
upon then they would be confirmed 

b. CAO appointed and removed by the 
Mayor (confirmed by the Board for 
a five year term) 

c. Controller's term ten years 

d. Department heads selected by 
the Mayor from nominees selected 
by the Departments 

e. Planning Commission would remain 
at seven members rather than five 

f. Human Rights Commission increased 
to fifteen members 

g. Police Commission could recommend 
removal of Police Chief 

h. Art Commission increased to 12 members 

(they would allocate grants instead of the 

CAO) 
I. Asian Arts Museum, Fine Arts Museum and 

War Memorial department heads serve at the 

pleasure of the Commission, 
j. Assessor receives the functions of the 

Recorder's office 
k. Multi year budgeting permitted but not 

mandated 
I. Registrar would remain Civil Service position 

appointed by the Controller 



Mr. Lazarus asks the Committee to forward comments 
to him. He acknowledges that there will be a sixth 
Draft . He also acknowledged that were still issues to 
be covered. He discussed creating a compensation 
code not amendable except as permissible by State law 
for Charter Reform. 



Public Comment Milton Edelin from the Department of City 

Planning discussed his correspondence to 
the Committee. Specifically jurisdictional 
overlap for example between themselves and 
the Arts Commission. The Department will discuss 
these and other issues further at their next regular 
meeting and respond further to the Committee. 



Minutes of May 5, 1994 Page 3 



The Co-Chairs clarified that the April 19, 1994 
letter to the Department Heads contained Mayor 
Jordan's, Supervisor Kaufman's and CAO 
Nothenberg's list of what was considered non- 
controversial, technical and obsolete. This list 
of items did not contain recommendations from 
the Advisory Committee, but was provided to 
the Departments and Community groups because 
the Advisory Committee believed that they might 
be considered controversial. 

Mr. Harrington suggests that we deal with 
those changes that have been agreed to be 
non-controversial. Mr. Ambrunn volunteered 
to review those changes and report back for 
a final vote at the next meeting. 
Discussion Major Structural Changes handout. 

Mr. Van Ness discussed the Board, 
City Manager, Commission, Elected 
Mayor system as it relates to Supervisor 
Hallinan's proposal. In this proposal the Mayor 
would serve as a liaison between the City Manager 
and the Board, guide policy, serve as an educator 
to the public regarding government issues and as an 
Ambassador of the City. The City Manager would 
manage all of the day to day functions of the City. 
The City Manager would be responsible for all 
Departments. The Board of Supervisors or City 
Council could then concentrate on the policy and 
legislative issues of the day. Mr. Ambrunn raised the 
concern of San Francisco losing status because of the 
diminished role of the Mayor. Mr. Johnson raised 
issues of the possibility of a Mayor with a strong 
personality "running" the government from the 
field. Ms. Provenzano asked if the City Manager plan 
diffused accountability even further. Mr. Harrington 
responded that it actually "pinpointed" accountability, 
The Board would be responsible for setting policy and 
the City Manager is responsible for implementation. 
Mr. Abrams reminded that is not always a clear 
distinction between policy and implementation. 



Minutes of May 5, 1994 Page 4 



Ms. Thier mentioned that if the City Manager is 
appointed it gives a lot of power to a non-elected 
official and raises accountability issues. Mr. Van Ness 
responded that if the City Manager doesn't do their 
job they can be removed. Mr. Birrer has experience 
working under CAO's and found it to be very effective. 
Further discussion raised questions of possible 
micro-management, whether the City Manager job 
would be politicized by the need to keep his or her 
position. Ms. Wong suggested setting a term limit 
to help prevent the City Manager from creating 
a constituency. Mr. Ambrunn noted that San 
Francisco voters prefer to restrict power. 



Public Comment 



Mr. Prudhomme shared a cautionary tale, warning 
that the voters can not directly get to the City 
Manager. 



Ms. Ambree' says that it sounds dictatorial, and 
that she is adamantly opposed to bringing outsiders 
to manage San Francisco.
